    ? about Lay of Clark hammock vs. WBBB or Damgerbird type hammock

    I have owned a WBBB, and an ENO Double nest. I have been looking into the Clark NX-250. I have watched a few videos and looked at the Clark site, but I am having trouble understanding the lay of the Clark. Nothing that I've seen shows anyone laying really truly asymmetrically. It seems as though they are relatively flat, but that they are laying fairly straight down the center line of the hammock. Is a truly asymmetrical lay possible in the Clark? Anyone with experience with this hammock vs. others, please chime in. By the way, I am 6'1" and about 250 lbs.
    Thanks,
    Chuck

    I've had all three. Right now use a Clark NX-200, but plan to replace it with a Dangerbird (my NX-200 weighs about 40 oz and I need to get that down to a lower value for backpacking). The Clark, to me, it by far the most comfortable hammock of the three. You can lay in it slightly diagonally, but not much because it is thinner than the other two. But, I haven't found it to be uncomfortable in the least and can't really explain why it's so comfortable.

    I have Hennessy Explorer and Clark NX-250 hammocks. I can get more 'diagonal' in the Hennessy but I'd say the Clark is just as comfortable. The Clark is more like being in a tube - it's a pretty flat lay even on the centerline. I use the Clark in the winter because it's warmer than the Hennessy. The NX-250 is really good if you like laying on your side.

    I don't have any experience with Warbonnet, but I'd expect it to be similar to the Hennessy.

    All great hammocks.

    I have only limited experience with the Warbonnet but in the Clark I find that there seems to be less of a center ridge than others I have tried and the flatness of the lay doesn't change whether laying down the center or diagonally. True, the Clark is narrower than the Warbonnet so less diagonal lay is even possible It may be that the 'diagonal lay' sought after by so many is more of an effort to 'get off the ridge' than to 'get flat'. I know that is the case in my Frontline.

    I use a Hennessy Explorer Deluxe and it truly is Asymmetrical. I get a good solid diagonal, flat lay in mine. I have also found its is comfortable on my side. I have never tried a Clark so couldnt comment on its lay.
